"I have nothing to say but it's OK" The Beatles

Not one to sit idly by, with no news on my CLL front expected for several weeks, I am working feverishly on how to plan my next post transplant move, my presentation to the local oncologists on the important papers on CLL at ASH on Friday 1/23/09, my report for the medical group on improving physician charting and other compliance issues, and finally on editing material for my book. This is not easy for someone who needs his daily naps.

The book business is a a big deal. Like medicine or any other gig, the creative, personal side is just one piece of the puzzle that must fit into the whole industry machinery. Writing , like painting, is not nearly enough. There must be a business side or no-one will read what you wrote (or see what you painted). 

I knew this. I wasn't that naive. Maybe I underestimated the amount of work involved in the commercial side preparation. Now, with my scheduled meeting with three agents in early Feb, it is time for me to come out of my deep denial, and do what needs to be done to make this book more than a vanity.
